Hereis Document for PHP: Great for Generation of HTML

November 19th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

The great thing about hereis documents is that in most cases you don't have to backslash quotes, your "html" thus retains its visibility
echo <<<__HTML__

<li><a href=”$pressdir$file”>$file</a>
__HTML__;

$html.= <<<__HTML__
<li><a href=”$pressdir$file”>$file</a>
__HTML__;

return <<<__HTML__
<li><a href=”$pressdir$file”>$file</a>
__HTML__;

it can also cope with arrays if you use the following syntax ${my_array[‘postcode’]}

return <<<__HTML__
<li><a href=”$multimap_url${my_array[‘postcode’]}”>${my_array[‘postcode’]}</a>
__HTML__;

I see so much ugly tangled php/javascript/html/css code which could be tidied up with the PHP Hereis Document
